Domino's Pizza is underscoring the importance of its carryout business by working to make roads easier to drive on. "We don't want to lose any great-tasting pizza to a pothole, ruining a wonderful meal", said Russell Weiner, president of Domino's United States of America, via a press release.

Domino's customers can nominate their town for pothole repairs on the Paving for Pizza website, and if selected, their city will "receive funds to help fix roads so pizzas make it home safely".

Domino's says it's "is saving pizza, one pothole at a time", with an effort aimed at fixing potholes nominated by customers. "We don't want to lose any great-tasting pizza to a pothole, ruining a wonderful meal", said Russell Weiner, president of Domino's USA.

The pizza chain has already done work in four cities to fix roads that directly affect their customers. It brands the fixed potholes with a Domino's logo and the tagline "Oh yes we did". So far the company has partnered with four towns: Bartonville, Texas; Milford, Del.; Athens, Ga.; and Burbank, Calif.

At the Trump-Kim Summit, Human Rights Are on the Agenda
This is the first ever meeting of a sitting US President with a North Korean Supreme leader. After the lunch, Mr Pompeo said the U.S. team is looking forward to the summit tomorrow.

Trump and Kim sign unspecified documents
CNN has not seen the document, but Trump said it would be shared later that day. Speaking through his translator, Mr Kim said it was "not easy" to get here.

The project, called "Paving for Pizza", will allow individuals to nominate their town on a website by ZIP code.

Domino's has even included a road condition meter on its website to show how pizzas are affected by mild, moderate, critical and catastrophic road conditions.

The company has repaired potholes in cities across the country, including 40 potholes in Milford, Delaware. On May 3, a Domino's spokesperson said the discovery was "an extremely isolated incident, confined to a single store".
